M3 Science focuses on physical science with an exploration of important physics, earth science and space science topics. The year begins with an investigation of the universe and how motions within the Earth-Moon-Sun system have predictable effects that can be observed on Earth. Key concepts in physics, including gravitational force and the properties of light waves, are woven into this first topic. The second major focus is the Earth itself with an examination of the dynamic processes that constantly alter the face of our planet, from plate tectonics to weathering and erosion. The final area of study looks at the motion of objects both large and small, including Newton’s famous Laws of Motion. The course is taught through class discussion and guided notes, science readings, interactive online and hands-on activities, and individual and small group projects.
